DEITER families, Gentry County
Posted by: Philinda Date: October 08, 2001 at 21:31:05
  of 380

I have this information on three brothers who went to Gentry
county in 1880. They appear as sons with father in Clinton
county MO on that census and also as brothers living together in Gentry. Census must have been mid-move.
I was told my great grandfather, John DEITER who was married to Margaret EDWARDS (perhaps 1881),lived in Gentry county. Stanberry was where I thought they lived. This census shows move was to Jackson.
I have tried emailing the library without response. I did see that Once Upon a Railroad listed a John Deiter, but the
text online gave no other information. Does anyone have anything on these brothers, particularly John? One of his sons was Louis (Lewis) and another was Clyde. I think they were hog farmers.
Here's the one John:

Anything on this family, including cemetery information etc would be helpful. I need to verify that this is my family. My father, also John, son of Louis, died young. I dont have much to go on.
Thank you for anything you can provide.
